Please review the maps below to navigate our campus according to the new field names.

Follow Radisson until you turn left onto 105th Ave NE. This route is signed to the NSC from the I-35W exit. The NSC buildings are south of 105th Ave NE. The majority of the fields are on the north side, between 105th and 109th Avenues.
